Some of the Basics
Every new home built in Alberta is protected under warranty, thanks to Alberta's New Home Buyer Protection Act.
New homes (single detached family homes/duplexes/multi-family homes/condominiums/manufactured homes/recreational properties) include, at a minimum, a warranty for:
- One year labour and materials
- Two years for defects in labour and materials related to delivery and distribution systems
- Five years building envelop protection, with a requirement for the warranty provider to offer the consumer the option to purchase additional years of coverage and,
- 10 year coverage for major structural components.
